Gingerbread houses lead to race wank!
It's kind of hard to sum this all up. Basically, mikenno posts a gingerbread house to gingerbreadfun, including a gingerbread man Nazi with a Smarties-and-icing swastika on his chest, and a dying Jewish man, and surrender_drthy gets offended. Everything then descends into a pool of race wank and surrender_drthy starts whining about race-based scholarships. Because, you know, "if you look up your New Zealand history, you'll find that even though it entirely sucks that some idiotic white people decided it was a great idea to steal the land from under other people's noses, nothing else was done. There wasn't huge violence, no one was locked up in camps or settlements. There is no prejudice agaisnt Maori people - no more than any normal prejudice against white people." I guess she's never heard of the New Zealand Land Wars or Parihaka, which, considering she's training to be a teacher IN NEW ZEALAND, is pretty sad.
OH GOD, HOW DID THIS HAPPEN IN A GINGERBREAD HOUSE COMMUNITY?
